What is the longest string of cover/traditional songs the boys ever played in a row?

My proposed rules: songs played with Beach Boys, New Riders, Dylan, etc., don't count. Reprises don't count (so NFA>GDTRFB>NFA counts as two songs). Shows before 1968 don't count. Strings split between two sets do count.

I've found one string of six, one of five, and a bunch of four. Do I hear seven?

P.S. Grate to see you again AR and LF!

I found one at 9 but it might violate the rules being that David Nelson and Marmaduke were guests.

Yes--no surprise to find some 8's in 66/67, but note my proposed rules.

Ah, yep; 67 and before are defn doable...might be even more, but many are not that long, set list wise. And 70 does have a lot with the guests...

Well, I'll let you know if I get anything so we can split it?

Seasons Of My Heart

Lyrics: George Jones, Darell Edwards
Music: George Jones, Darrell Edwards

Played a few times by the Grateful Dead in 1969-70, often in acoustic sets.

Seasons come and seasons go
We get a little sunshine, rain and snow
Just the way that it was planned to be
But there's no season in my heart
While you play the leading part
There the flowers will bloom eternally

Chorus
Your leaving, it will bring autumn sorrow
And my tears like weathered leaves will fall
But spring it may bring us glad tomorrow
And darling, we could be happy after all

As it is in nature's plan
No season gets the upper hand
How I tried to bear this fact in mind
The trees are bare, the cold winds blow
But by experience we should know
Winter comes but the spring is close behind

[Chorus]

So did the judges make a ruling yet? What do I get? I am really counting on something big--credenza or chiffarobe?

Eight's going to be tough to beat, but let's give it another day in case someone turns up a string of nine.

It's fascinating but I guess no surprise that all of the long strings so far have come from 1970.

Based on some if the cheesy products they are currently offering for purchase at dead.net it wouldn't surprise me if we see the skull and roses cap soon.

Would give new meaning to the high holidays.
